This is a charmed week! Just in an e mail from the friends with the 2 ft. long rattlesnake in residence. It appeared again this morning to sun itself by their pool - this time Jim kept an eye on it while waiting for the fire department to come out so they were able to successfully relocate it.
Went for routine mammogram and was totally charmed by a woman in the waiting room. 90 years old in May - perky, bright-eyed, engaged with the world.
